One of the superannuation directors at the ATO is set to depart in early November.

Howard Dickinson, director for superannuation at the tax office, is retiring. He’s set to depart the ATO on November 10.

He currently oversees the SMSF client experience at the tax office, which includes the support and oversight of SMSF administration and regulation.
